Cure For The Common Crush
Label: Guinness Records

A creative Canadian dripping on the goss of Bowie and Pink Floyd via his anthemic psychedelic rock platitudes with ambient quagmires and juxtapositions of frilly frivolity ultimately producing sustained excitement.

Melting catchy inflections of bluegrass, Americana and jam rock into a fun and furious spectacular of momentous proportions. The harmonious harmonica packs their sultry rhythms with an air of delicacy and intricacy as do the harmonic vocals.

Beloved hometown Madison quirk-nauts spew forth a beguiling array of witty song spins. From utilizing every town in Wisconsin as lyrical fodder to showcasing such guest musicians as Adrian Belew and Robert Fripp, they delight and frolic in the asinine as well as the sublime.

Label: Sci Fidelity Records

Funky swirls of patterned rhythms bump and repel through electronic sound-scapes that fly free with an air of jam-tronic completion and trip-hop contemplation. Jason Hann and Michael Travis (of STRING CHEESE INCIDENT) are the synthesizing musical musculature that weaves this craft to consciousness. Live, they are 100% improvisational, creating a unique experience nightly.

Spaced out, mostly non-vocal jam rock that finds footholds in the jazz, funk, soul and techno world. At times the floaty jazzy grooves have whisked me off to a distant planet of fuzz, love and murmur. Delightful!

This incessantly slow grind and churn outfit pulls out achingly somber yet meditative sonic soliloquies that would leave few standing. Time warping trance etheric tonalities.
